The Langham, London Hotel Review

: Since its opening in 1865, The Langham has played a key role in London society. Oscar Wilde and Mark Twain were once guests, and it's still one of London's premium five-star hotels. This Victorian grande dame exudes elegance and is one of the most beautiful buildings in London. Following an £80 million restoration, the hotel now offers 380 luxurious rooms and suites, fifteen function rooms and the Palm Court, which has staked a claim as the place where the tradition of afternoon tea was born. As guests would expect, bedrooms will make you want to flop onto the duvet and never leave. Even at the lower end, classic rooms are sweet and simple with cozy armchairs, marble bathrooms and effortless style. Suites are decadent, with lush purple velvet, floor-to-ceiling sashed windows, chandeliers and stunning views. All rooms have PlayStations and Internet access. One of the highlights of any stay is a visit to Roux at The Landau. Father and son, Albert Roux and Michel Roux Junior (of Le Gavroche fame), have combined forces to keep the Langham firmly on the map for haute cuisine. The tasting menu includes warm asparagus with bone marrow and morel crumb, with shaved Serrano ham; and label Anglais chicken and foie gras galantine with a clear verjus and rosemary jelly.
